* Platform-Enabled Sessions are a unique instance in which our licensed software platform has facilitated a virtual voice or video encounter between a care provider and our client’s patient, or between care providers. We believe platform-enabled sessions are an indicator of the value our clients derive from the platform they license from us in order to facilitate virtual care.

  • Net loss was $(199.6) million for the first quarter 2021 compared to $(29.6) million for the first quarter 2020. Net loss includes stock-based compensation expense of $86.3 million for first quarter 2021, an increase of $68.0 from first quarter 2020, substantially reflecting higher expense associated with Livongo stock awards that continue to vest after the merger. Net loss also includes amortization of acquired intangibles of $45.4 million for first quarter 2021, an increase of $37.0 million from first quarter 2020, substantially reflecting higher amortization of acquired intangible assets from the Livongo and InTouch Health acquisitions. Net loss also includes a non-cash income tax charge of $87.0 million for the first quarter 2021, substantially reflecting the recording of a valuation allowance on stock compensation benefits associated with the Livongo merger.

  • Net loss per basic and diluted share was $(1.31) for the first quarter 2021 compared to $(0.40) for the first quarter 2020. Net loss per basic and diluted share includes stock-based compensation expense of $0.57 per share and $0.25 per share for first quarter 2021 and 2020, respectively. Net loss per basic and diluted share also includes amortization of acquired intangible assets of $0.30 per share and $0.11 per share for first quarter 2021 and 2020, respectively. In addition, net loss includes the non-cash income tax charge referred to above of $0.57 per share for the first quarter of 2021 as compared to a benefit of $(0.01) per share in the first quarter of 2020. The number of weighted-average shares outstanding was 152.2 million for first quarter 2021, up from 73.3 million for first quarter 2020, substantially reflecting the impact of the Livongo and InTouch Health acquisitions.

  • GAAP Gross margin, which includes depreciation and amortization, was 67.0 percent for the first quarter 2021 and 59.2 percent for the first quarter 2020.

  • Adjusted Gross margin was 67.8 percent for the first quarter 2021 compared to 60.0 percent for the first quarter 2020.

  • EBITDA was a loss of $(36.0) million for the first quarter 2021 compared to a loss of $(11.3) million for the first quarter 2020. EBITDA includes stock-based compensation expense of $86.3 million for first quarter 2021, an increase of $68.0 from first quarter 2020, substantially reflecting higher expense associated with Livongo stock awards that continue to vest after the merger.

  • Adjusted EBITDA was $56.6 million for the first quarter 2021 compared to $10.7 million for the first quarter 2020.

A reconciliation of generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) in the United States to non-GAAP results has been provided in this press release in the accompanying tables. An explanation of these measures is also included below under the heading “Non-GAAP Financial Measures”.

Financial Outlook
Teladoc Health provides guidance based on current market conditions and expectations. Given the uncertainty of the expected path of the COVID-19 pandemic as well as the broader economic impact, our updated guidance is based on what we know today. As this is an evolving situation, circumstances are likely to change, but we believe our guidance ranges provide a reasonable baseline for 2021 financial performance.

For the second-quarter 2021, we expect:

  • Total revenue to be in the range of $495 million to $505 million.

  • EBITDA to be in the range of $(38) million to $(35) million.

  • Adjusted EBITDA to be in the range of $61 million to $64 million.

  • Total U.S. paid membership to be in the range of 52 million to 53 million members and visit fee only access to be available to 22 to 23 million individuals, including 2 to 3 million individuals on a temporary basis.

  • Total visits to be between 3.2 million and 3.4 million.

For the full-year 2021, we expect:

  • Total revenue to be in the range of $1,970 million to $2,020 million.

  • EBITDA to be in the range of $(120) million to $(100) million.

  • Adjusted EBITDA to be in the range of $255 million to $275 million, including an estimated $20 million in lower expenses primarily related to Livongo devices as a result of the merger.

  • Total U.S. paid membership to be in the range of 52 million to 54 million members and visit fee only access to be available to 22 to 23 million individuals, including 2 to 3 million individuals on a temporary basis.

  • Total visits to be between 12.5 million and 13.5 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

To supplement our financial information presented in accordance with GAAP, we use adjusted gross profit, adjusted gross margin, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA, which are non-GAAP financial measures to clarify and enhance an understanding of past performance. We believe that the presentation of these financial measures enhances an investor’s understanding of our financial performance. We further believe that these financial measures are useful financial metrics to assess our operating performance from period-to-period by excluding certain items that we believe are not representative of our core business. We use certain financial measures for business planning purposes and in measuring our performance relative to that of our competitors. We utilize adjusted EBITDA as the primary measure of our performance.

Adjusted gross profit is our total revenue minus our total cost of revenue (exclusive of depreciation and amortization, which is shown separately) and adjusted gross margin is adjusted gross profit as a percentage of our total revenue. We believe that these measures provide investors meaningful information to understand our results of operations and the ability to analyze financial and business trends on a period-to-period basis.

EBITDA consists of net loss before interest; other (income) expense, net, including foreign exchange gain or loss; taxes; depreciation and amortization; and loss on extinguishment of debt We believe that making such adjustment provides investors meaningful information to understand our results of operations and the ability to analyze financial and business trends on a period-to-period basis.

Adjusted EBITDA consists of net loss before interest; other (income) expense, net, including foreign exchange gain or loss; taxes; depreciation and amortization; loss on extinguishment of debt; stock-based compensation; and acquisition, integration and transformation costs. We believe that making such adjustment provides investors meaningful information to understand our results of operations and the ability to analyze financial and business trends on a period-to-period basis.

We believe the above financial measures are commonly used by investors to evaluate our performance and that of our competitors. However, our use of the terms adjusted gross profit, adjusted gross margin, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA may vary from that of others in our industry. None of adjusted gross profit, adjusted gross margin, EBITDA nor adjusted EBITDA should be considered as an alternative to net loss before taxes, net loss, loss per share or any other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP as measures of performance.

Adjusted gross profit, adjusted gross margin, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA have important limitations as analytical tools and you should not consider them in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Some of these limitations are:

  • Adjusted gross margin has been and will continue to be affected by a number of factors, including the fees we charge our clients, the number of visits and cases we complete, the costs paid to providers and medical experts, as well as the costs of our provider network operations center;

  • Adjusted gross margin does not reflect the significant depreciation and amortization to cost of revenue;

  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect the significant acquisition, integration and transformation costs. Acquisition, integration and transformation costs include investment banking, financing, legal, accounting, consultancy, integration, fair value changes related to contingent consideration and certain other transaction costs related to mergers and acquisitions. It also includes costs related to certain business transformation initiatives focused on integrating and optimizing various operations and systems, including upgrading our customer relationship management (CRM) and enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems. These transformation cost adjustments made to our results do not represent normal, recurring, operating expenses necessary to operate the business but rather, incremental costs incurred in connection with our acquisition and integration activities;

  • other companies in our industry may calculate adjusted gross profit, adjusted gross margin, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA differently than we do, limiting the usefulness of these measures as comparative measures.

In addition, although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future, and adjusted gross profit, adjusted gross margin, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA do not reflect any expenditures for such replacements.

We compensate for these limitations by using adjusted gross profit, adjusted gross margin, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA along with other comparative tools, together with GAAP measurements, to assist in the evaluation of operating performance. Such GAAP measurements include net loss, net loss per share and other performance measures.

In evaluating these financial measures, you should be aware that in the future we may incur expenses similar to those eliminated in this presentation. Our presentation of adjusted gross profit, adjusted gross margin, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an inference that our future results will be unaffected by unusual or nonrecurring items.

We have not reconciled EBITDA or adjusted EBITDA guidance to GAAP net income (loss) because we do not provide guidance on GAAP net income (loss) or the reconciling items between EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA and GAAP net income (loss). This is due to the uncertainty as to timing, and the potential variability of, reconciling items such as the tax impact of share-based compensation, the effect of which may be significant. Accordingly, a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measure guidance to the corresponding GAAP measure is not available without unreasonable effort.

The following is a reconciliation of gross profit and gross margin, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, to adjusted gross profit and adjusted gross margin, respectively:
